Tena koutou e te iwi,

During the recent round of hui-a-iwi held within our rohe and Auckland the common key message we heard concerned the Iwi Registration database, held by the Kahukuraariki Trust Board.

Over the past 2 months we have transitioned the database into a new system, known as Tiki-OS. We have been checking that membership data contained within it to ensure that all the beneficiaries within the database whakapapa to Ngati Kahu ki Whangaroa.

This new system allows iwi members to update their details and their tamariki details online. Our aim is to provide surety and trust in the system and to assist operations to provide clearer communication and greater transparency, which can all be organised and managed via the new database system by email and/or text messaging (provide we have your correct mobile phone number and email).

Online voting will be available for the upcoming AGM/SGM in March 2022, to be held at Waihapa Marae. If Covid and lockdowns persist, we will seek to hold online hui instead (let’s hope we don’t have to). More detail about the hui will be posted shortly but for now whanau, please follow the steps below by using MaoriMe to either register or update your Iwi membership details. We have heard it is a bit hard to navigate at the start, but once you do it a couple of times it becomes much easier for you and your whanau to understand.

If all else fails, you can always email us on register@kahukuraariki.iwi.nz remember the details you put into MaoriMe will automatically update your details on the Ngatikahu ki Whangaroa Iwi Database. Please be assured your details are secure and will not be shared elsewhere.
